“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to 

look through each other’s eyes for an instant?”

Henry David Thoreau


Do we start from empathy when we set out to solve educational challenges and design learning pathways for our students?

How do we foster empathy and make it a starting point for problem solving and the design of new solutions for both ourselves and for our students?

 

Empathy over sympathy
Lately it seems all roads lead to empathy: 
 

Tony Wagner in Creating Innovators identifies empathy as a necessary characteristic for innovators;
 

 David Kelly of Stanford University identifies empathy as the starting point for all problem solving;
 

 Daniel Goleman states leaders with empathy do more than sympathize with people around them: they use their knowledge to improve their companies in subtle, but important ways.
 

 

================

Not only is empathy vital for

solving problems responsively and

meaningfully, empathy is an

underpinning for connection
